About This Course

JavaScript is an extremely popular language and many developers use it in some form. However, there are many parts of its syntax and API that get challenging and confusing as developers use it more. It is a language with many idiosyncrasies.

This Advanced JavaScript course is designed to help intermediate JavaScript developers better handle confusing parts of the language. This course will cover working with JavaScript prototypes, scopes/closures, asynchronous JavaScript, functions/objects, and events.

Javascript Developer, RetailMeNot
I had trouble understanding a certain concept, and told the instructor that I just didn't get it. While the class was busy with an exercise, he sat down with me, gave me material to read, and made sure I understood it before I moved on. I really appreciated that.

The instructor has a great attitude and pacing. Amazing how much he knows about JS!
